People of Northwest Public Radio
To listen to As It Happens is to see the world through a clear, sharp Canadian lens. For more than 35 years, the CBC's popular current affairs program has explored the heart of a story, whether it's happening in the streets of Belgrade, the dockyards of Vancouver, the boardrooms of Bay Street, or the kitchens of Paris.
As It Happens talks to any and everyone, securing interviews with world leaders, rabble-rousers, bingo callers and deposed dictators. The show has a soft spot for characters and never turns its nose up at the weird or wacky. And on complex or troubling issues, it searches for greater understanding in the stories behind the main story.
American Routes is a weekly public radio program produced in New Orleans, presenting a broad range of American music — blues and jazz, gospel and soul, old-time country and rockabilly, Cajun and zydeco, Tejano and Latin, roots rock and pop, avant-garde and classical. Now in our 12th year on the air,American Routes explores the shared musical and cultural threads in these American styles and genres of music — and how they are distinguished.
